This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters – never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.
As Clary uncovers more about her family’s past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he’s willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City – whatever the cost?
This one is even better than the first and second and it’s no wonder really, as we get to know the main characters better and they develop nicely; we are pulled in even further into the world of supernatural creatures. This is action-packed from the beginning to the end and full of jaw dropping moments I had absolutely no idea about pre it happening.
A great book that contained everything the first two may have lacked. Everything is explained! Every question you’ve might have had from the first books, you get the answer here! Read it! You won’t regret it. It’s a book filled with so many different emotions, you’ll cry one minute and laugh the next.
The book is charged with all the elements the YA and fantasy genre are used to but with Cassandras writing it becomes something much greater and powerful.
If you thought the first two were a little goofy then you’re in luck because this one is without a doubt, the most serious we don’t see that many sarcastic comments that we’ve gotten used to.
The more I read in this genre, the more I’m being pulled in.
